Film star Loretta Young (1913-2000) had three sisters (along with a brother named Jack) - Polly Ann Young, Elizabeth Jane Young (screen name of Sally Blane) and Georgiana Young.
Loretta, Polly Ann and Elizabeth (Sally) were from her Mother's first marriage. They appeared together in one movie - as the four Hubbard sisters - in THE STORY OF ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL (20th Century Fox, 1939) which starred Loretta and Don Ameche. Georgiana had no film career ambitions and married actor Ricardo Montalban circa 1944. While Loretta was under a 20th Century Fox contract, Polly Ann and Elizabeth (Sally) freelanced, doing mostly B grade movies through the 1930s before settling into married life and raising families. Loretta, Polly Ann and Sally are interred at Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City, California.
